You are probably wondering what a Yaeba is. Well, if you are in fact, lost and don’t know what this Japanese trend is then you went to the right place. Yaeba is actually a growing Japanese teeth trend that somehow started last year. Yaeba means double tooth or snaggle tooth in Japanese. In Japan, many women pay at least $390 in order to achieve this odd look. One of the famous places where this procedure can be done is a place called Dental Salon Plaisir which is located in Tokyo’s Ginza neighborhood. There many women flock to get their teeth done this way. The procedure isn’t painful as artificial teeth are placed over natural teeth using non-permanent glue. Because of this, the procedure is not a permanent one which makes it easy for the person to ditch the look ones it goes out of style.
Japanese women undergo the procedure in order to look more child-like and more approachable. Some Japanese men have already confessed to finding the look endearing and cute. Although Yaeba teeth are not really for everyone, more and more women want to have the look to make them more appealing to the opposite sex. Somehow, the fad has given light to the flaws that people have that instead of making them look ugly in front of everyone, they make them look beautiful. This trend is making many pay for a look that will make them different instead of being of their natural beauties. No one can tell when and where the fad started as to what inspired it but many believe that the yaeba look is a way for many people to realize that imperfections are indeed beautiful. Whether or not you believe that or not is up to you. After all, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
Hollywood actress Kirsten Dunst is one famous person who possess natural Yaeba teeth. To her, her Yaeba teeth makes her look sexier and different from all the other actresses in Hollywood. She celebrates the crookedness of her teeth by not trying to change it one bit. It seems that the idea of aligned, perfect, white teeth will be forgotten for awhile in Japan as it continues to make way and to go gaga over the crowded, crooked-toothed smile with accentuated mini fangs. Whether or not the trend will stay is a huge question to many in Japan. But as of now, the trend continues to have a strong following and I don’t see it ending any time soon. So, don’t be surprised if you see a lot of Japanese women with crooked smiles. Perhaps they are just trying to be fashionable as they follow the Yaeba look. Would you dare to have the Yaeba look?
